organizational processes 
Organizational Change due to the appropriation of Information Technologies 

Understanding and modelling of groups or organizations 
Strategies and solutions for the integration of emerging Internet 
businesses 
New computer-enabled forms of organization 
Distributed work in outsourcing and off-shoring settings 
Digital communities: experiences and evaluation 
Collaboratories and distributed scientific work 
Organizational re-use of information 
Appropriation processes and technical support 
Impacts of wireless, mobile and wearable technologies on cooperative work 
New forms of Internet behavior, including peer-to-peer, blogs, and social 
network-based systems 
New forms of education, entertainment and social relations based on 
cooperation technologies 
Social aspects of globally distributed computing and new cooperative work 
technologies 
Technical and Implementation Issues:
Organizational computing systems and infrastructure 
Innovative groupware solutions and technologies 
Coordination and workflow technology 
Collaborative components in standard IT systems, such as ERP or CAD 
systems 
Communityware and Social Software 
Cooperative knowledge management, organizational learning and 
organizational memory 
Tailorability and End User Developments 
Highly flexible architectures, such as service- and component-based systms 

Innovative forms of human-computer interaction for cooperative 
technologies 
Papers should present original, unpublished research on technological 
mediation of activities affecting groups, organizations, and social 
networks. (See Guide to Successful Paper Submissions)
Theory, methodology, systems and concept papers should present new 
theories, methodologies, empirical results, architectures, prototype 
systems, or design concepts that stimulate new ways of thinking about, 
studying or supporting, shared activities. Application and practice papers 
should describe experiences with systems that support shared activities. 
All papers should make the case, in the paper itself, for how the work 
relates to previous research or experience and what aspects of the work 
are new. Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, 
significance of the contribution to the field, quality of research, 
quality of writing, and contribution to conference program diversity.
Papers should be no longer than 10 pages, including the abstract, all 
figures and references, and should be formatted according to the ACM SIG 
Proceedings Template.



NOTES: May 28th is the deadline for submitting 4 page notes.  Please see 
the Group 2007 website for more details.

In 2007 GROUP will introduce a new submission category: GROUP Notes are 
intended to increase the diversity of the technical program by encouraging 
new types of submissions. Notes aim to bring research into the GROUP and 
CSCW community that is relevant and original, but that might not fit well 
within the traditional long papers program.
Like long papers, Notes should present original, unpublished research on 
technological mediation of activities affecting groups of people. However, 
Notes are designed to be more succinct and focused than long papers. With 
this new category we further want to encourage submissions from industry 
to report on recent developments or current research and development issue 
that industry wants to discuss with the academic community. Examples of 
potential topics are:
A new implementation approach that addresses a significant technical issue 
in collaboration systems. 
Current research and development issues from an industrial perspective 
that can stimulate the discussion between academics and industry. 
The design of a new interaction technique that supports groups. 
A new methodology for studying collaborative systems that the authors 
believe the community should consider and discuss. 
A follow-up paper based on a previously published paper. 
Notes are not expected to include an extensive discussion of related work. 
However, Notes should be situated with respect to closely related work. 




Workshops: May 28th is the deadline for submitting 4 page proposal. Please 
see the Group 2007 website for more details. 
http://www.acm.org/conferences/group/conferences/group07/call_workshops.html





A workshop proposal should not exceed 4 pages. The proposal must contain a 
title, goals, and plan for the workshop. The proposal should also discuss 
the organizers' backgrounds, a profile of participants sought, how the 
workshop will be advertised, the maximum number of participants, the 
planned duration (half-day/full-day) and the audio/visual equipment 
needed.
